Ryder has opened launched an interesting new service dubbed Ryder On-Demand. It has essentially opened up its entire service network to private and for-hire fleets. I can see this being an intriguing option for small carriers who are struggling to keep up with the service requirements of the latest-technology components.

Ryder said it will provide a “pay-as-you-go” maintenance service to fleets, offering pre-determined labour rates and parts pricing across its entire network. This service will also include roadside assistance.

“New complex engine technologies and tightening emissions and safety regulations make it more challenging than ever to maintain a large fleet of vehicles,” said Jerry Brown, Ryder Canada vice-president and general manager, fleet management solutions. “Many fleet owners no longer have the capital or resources to hire and train qualified technicians and invest in maintenance infrastructure.” More info on the new service can be found here.
